Handy New Container Keeps Guacamole Fresh for Days


Guacamole fans, listen up: There’s a new product that claims to know how to keep guacamole fresh — for much longer than a few minutes. We all know the pain of watching our delicious green dip turn brown and icky before our eyes, so if rave reviews are to be believed, the “Guac-Lock” may be the solution to the problem.

Guac-Lock, aside from having a truly adorable name, promises to keep your guacamole fresh by preventing oxidation, the reaction that causes it to change into that unsavory color. Here’s how the magic happens: The container sits on a base that removes the oxygen inside and creates an airtight seal from the push. And it claims to keep the good stuff good for days.

The Guac-Lock also boasts shatterproof, odor-proof, stain-resistant, and BPA-free plastic, so it sounds more than durable enough to hold your precious dip. Plus, even if you’re not a guacamole fan, the product is also great for keeping other popular dips, like salsa, fresh for days. An added bonus: The Guac-Lock can do double-duty as a storage bowl and a serving bowl, meaning there’s less dishes to clean up after the batch is finally gone.

It sounds unbelievable, but according to several reviews on Amazon, it sounds like this product has finally achieved what guac lovers everywhere thought was impossible.

One satisfied customer wrote, “I’m on day seven and the guacamole is still bright green and flavor has hardly been lost. Very pleased!”

Another user claimed that the Guac-Lock even worked for plain ol’ avocado, without all the extra mix-ins, writing, “I found that I can fit about 4 1/2 – 5 of the small avocados in one container, with the rest going in the second container if I don’t eat it straight away.”

If you want to see for yourself if Guac-Lock is worth the hype, it’s available for purchase on Amazon for $18.97.
